Book Description :

1st May 1915: the luxury ocean liner Lusitania sailed out of New York, bound for Liverpool. Her passengers were anxious. Germany had declared the seas around Britain to be a war zone and its submarines were bringing terror to the Atlantic. But the Lusitania’s captain, William Thomas Turner, had faith in the gentlemanly terms of warfare that had, for a century, kept civilian ships safe from attack. He also knew that his ship was the fastest then in service and could outrun any threat. Germany was, however, intent on changing the rules, and Walther Schwieger, the captain of Unterseeboot-20, was happy to oblige. For this would be the ill-fated Lusitania’s final crossing . . .

Book Description :

#1 New York Times Bestseller From the bestselling author and master of narrative nonfiction comes the enthralling story of the sinking of the Lusitania On May 1, 1915, with WWI entering its tenth month, a luxury ocean liner as richly appointed as an English country house sailed out of New York, bound for Liverpool, carrying a record number of children and infants. The passengers were surprisingly at ease, even though Germany had declared the seas around Britain to be a war zone. For months, German U-boats had brought terror to the North Atlantic. But the Lusitania was one of the era’s great transatlantic “Greyhounds”—the fastest liner then in service—and her captain, William Thomas Turner, placed tremendous faith in the gentlemanly strictures of warfare that for a century had kept civilian ships safe from attack. Germany, however, was determined to change the rules of the game, and Walther Schwieger, the captain of Unterseeboot-20, was happy to oblige. Meanwhile, an ultra-secret British intelligence unit tracked Schwieger’s U-boat, but told no one. As U-20 and the Lusitania made their way toward Liverpool, an array of forces both grand and achingly small—hubris, a chance fog, a closely guarded secret, and more—all converged to produce one of the great disasters of history. It is a story that many of us think we know but don’t, and Erik Larson tells it thrillingly, switching between hunter and hunted while painting a larger portrait of America at the height of the Progressive Era. Full of glamour and suspense, Dead Wake brings to life a cast of evocative characters, from famed Boston bookseller Charles Lauriat to pioneering female architect Theodate Pope to President Woodrow Wilson, a man lost to grief, dreading the widening war but also captivated by the prospect of new love. Gripping and important, Dead Wake captures the sheer drama and emotional power of a disaster whose intimate details and true meaning have long been obscured by history.

Dead Wake by Erik Larson | A 15-minute Summary & Analysis Preview: Dead Wake by Erik Larson is a non-fiction account of the German Unterseeboot, or U-boat, sinking of Lusitania, a British merchant vessel belonging to Cunard Line, on May 7, 1915 and its aftermath. On the night of May 6, 1915, Captain William Thomas reassured the passengers in the first-class lounge as the ship approached the ‘area of war’ off the southern coast of Ireland. The Great War, later known as World War I, had been raging in France since July 28, 1914 following the assassination of Archduke Franz Ferdinand and his wife, Sophie. In August of 1914, President Woodrow Wilson’s wife, Ellen, died of Bright’s disease. Her death left Wilson grief stricken. Two days before her death, Britain entered the war in Europe. Wilson chose to keep America neutral in the war and refused to allow British and German warships to enter US ports. In September of 1914, German submarines… PLEASE NOTE: This is an unofficial summary and analysis of the book and NOT the original book.

Book Description :

Dead Wake: by Erik Larson | Summary & Analysis A Smarter You In 15 Minutes... What is your time worth? "Dead Wake" is Erik Larson's account of events surrounding the last voyage of the liner, Lusitania. The basic story is well known. Lusitania sailed from New York on 1st May, 1915 bound for Liverpool. On 7th May, 12 miles off the southern Irish coast she was torpedoed by a German U-boat and sank with the loss of 1198 civilian lives, many of them American. Larson explores the military and political background to the attack. He asks questions and supplies possible answers which, where they cannot be proved, do at least make sense. The rules of war were being changed by events. Prior to May 1916, naval warfare was a gentlemanly affair with passenger ships allowed to pass unmolested and cargo ships subject to search but not sinking, at least not without first removing the crew. Germany was intent on changing all that. Erik Larson explains why and addresses other questions. Why did the ship sail at all when the Admiralty was fully aware of the U-Boat threat to ships approaching the British Isles? Lusitania was the fastest ship afloat, nothing could catch her and her owners and her Master, Captain Turner, believed that her speed alone would keep Lusitania safe from the U-Boat's torpedoes. Walther Schwieger, captain of U20, knew better! Why did the Admiralty not provide a Naval escort through these dangerous waters? Was it really a political ploy? Did the British Government of the day consider that if harm should befall Lusitania and her many American passengers, America would be more likely to enter the war against Germany? Larson examines this long held suspicion.

Book Description :

This is not the actual Erik Larson's Dead Wake: The Last Crossing of the Lusitania. The primary objective of this book is to bring a review, insightful discussion and critique of Erik Larson's Dead Wake: The Last Crossing of the Lusitania to readers everywhere. RMS Titanic, a British passenger liner, was the largest ship of its day. It wasconsidered to be unsinkable until it struck an iceberg and sank in the North Atlantic Ocean on April 15, 1912. Three years later, on May 1, 1915, the British ocean liner RMS Lusitania left Pier 54 on the Hudson River in Manhattan for what was to be her last voyage. Her passengers and crew could not know that they were about to repeat the fate of the Titanic. Only this time it was a man-made tragedy in which 1,198 people, including 123 Americans, lost their lives. It was a German submarine that sank Lusitania off the southern coast of Ireland, making an impact on the course of World War I. Erik Larson's book, Dead Wake: The Last Crossing of the Lusitania, masterfully revives and brings to the reader the story of the last days of the Lusitania, her passengers and crew.

Book Description :

When the church falls short of being an excellent description of the Body of Christ, there is an urgent need for a reawakening. When the character of the church is no longer consistent with the character of Jesus Christ, the head of the Body of Christ, there is a need to sound the fire alarm. When the church can no longer influence its members and the world in doing what is scripturally right, but good and acceptable, there is an urgent need for a spirit-guided self-examination. When supposed church members are no longer guided or led by the spirit of God but the senses or the world, there is a need for transformation by the renewing of the mind. When church members can no longer tell the difference between the true gospel of Christ Jesus and the secular gospel both preached from the same Holy Bible, there is an urgent need to speak out to save many from the path of damnation. The focus of this work is not so much on those social and business empires branded churches but on the individual whose genuine spiritual state is hinged on a personal relationship with God. Everyone must press in.

Book Description :

“This account by Farmer is both intimate but also the dispassionate, clear version you’d expect from a journalist.”—OprahMag.com, “20 Best True Crime Books" In this shocking true-crime drama, a forty-year-old double murder brings together a grieving family and two brothers—just kids when they witnessed their father commit the brutal act—to track down a psychopath once suspected as being the Golden State Killer. “A real-life page turner more intriguing than anything on Netflix.” –Matt Nixson, Books Editor, Mail on Sunday (London) In 1978, two tortured corpses—hooded, bound, and weighted down with engine parts—were found in the sea off Guatemala. Junior doctor Chris Farmer and his girlfriend, Peta Frampton, were still clinging to life when they were thrown from the yacht they’d been crewing. Here is the gripping account of how Chris's family worked alongside police, the FBI, and Interpol to gather evidence against the boat’s Californian skipper, Silas Duane Boston. Almost four decades later, in 2015, Chris’s sister, Penny, used Facebook to track down Boston. Following the detailed, haunting testimony of his own two sons—who also implicated their father in a string of other killings—Boston was finally arrested and charged with two counts of maritime murder. A story of homicide on the high seas, Dead in the Water is also a tale of a family’s fortitude and diligence in tracking down a monster.

Book Description :

Magnus "Steps" Craig is part of the elite three-man Special Tracking Unit of the FBI. Called in on special cases where his skills are particularly needed, he works as a tracker. The media dubs him "The Human Bloodhound," since Steps is renowned for his incredible ability to find and follow trails over any surface better than anyone else. But there's a secret to his success. Steps has a special ability---a kind of synesthesia---where he can see the 'essence' of a person, something he calls 'shine,' on everything they've touched. His ability is known to only a few people---his father, the director of the FBI, and his partner, Special Agent Jimmy Donovan. When the remains of a murdered woman are found, Steps recognizes the shine left by the murderer from another crime scene with a physically similar victim. And he uncovers the signature at both scenes---the mark of a sad face. At the same time, another killer, one Steps has dubbed Leonardo and has been trying to track for over ten years, appears again, taunting Steps. But while Steps tries to find a clue that will lead him to Leonardo, the case of the Sad Face Killer heats up. The team uncovers eleven possible victims: missing women who fit the same pattern. Using his skill and the resources of the Bureau, it is a race against time to find the killer before it's too late.
